Chocolate Lover's Oatmeal Delights
Chef:  Pat Habiger - Spearville, KS          Category:  Desserts

1-1/4 cups flour
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powdered
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter, softened
1-1/2 cups sugar
1 egg
1/4 cup water
1-1/2 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups quick cooking oats
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup peanut butter flavored chips

Directions: In a medium mixing bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside. In very large mixing bowl, beat butter for about 30 seconds. Add the sugar and beat until combined. Beat in egg, water and vanilla till mixed well. Beat in as much flour as you can. Using wooden spoon, stir in remaining flour and the oats. Stir in chocolate pieces and peanut butter flavored pieces. Drop dough by rounded spoonfuls 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. I like to use parchment paper. Bake at 350°F oven for 10 to12 minutes. Makes about 4 dozen cookies.
